Pokemon summary faces

Next to the Pokemon's picture on Summary, it shows a little orange face. What does this mean?
Thanks for your help,

Comment:(Jan 8 2009) Ok, thank you for answering

That means that the Pokemon has been cured of Pokerus. Pokerus is a virus that makes your Pokemon grow better for a short time. Once it's cured, that Pokemon can never have pokerus again, and a face (the one you have next to your pokemon) will appear on your pokemon's summary.

Hope this helps!

That means your Pokemon was infected with Pokerus, but is now cured. Once it has that little face it can't get Pokerus again.

PS: Pokerus lets your Pokemon grow stronger, faster for a period of time. It is good.
